Current Environment:

Research & Innovation | Overview

There is tremendous focus on understanding the underlying causes of pulmonary disease — findings that will improve not just treatment but possibly find a cure. The Pulmonary Hypertension Program at Boston Children’s is dedicated to learning more about PH so we can better treat and hopefully someday prevent the disease. To that end, we’re involved in dozens of research projects and clinical and therapeutic trials — work that is already making a difference.

New techniques

  • We’re developing new techniques to expand the use echocardiographs and MRIs to capture images of the right ventricle, so that we can more effectively diagnose and treat PH.
